theres a screw on top of the headlamp, you just turn it one way or the other to make it higher or lower, i forget which side does what though. i just used my finger for it. your old headlamps have the exact same screw in the exact same spot by the way.

Any idea why the lowbeams have that asymmetrical 'S' shaped cutoff for both lights?
i have the exact same result on mine.
But then again, I had reflectors before

if you take off the black moisture sealer, take out the actual bulb and look into the projector outwards, you can see the metal cutoff is not perfectly straight, it is more like this (exaggerated in my awful drawing lol)

^^ignore the dots, i had to put them in there so the picture would show up

to be honest i'm really not sure why its like that... i know ive seen posts of people with older models taking apart their projectors and filing it down so its straight, but i dont know why it was made like that

its quite pronounced at the cutoff (once again probably because i havent had projector lights before), but thanks for the explanation! i was just worried it was because of my own installation
i think i'll pass on opening up my headlights for now.
but for future reference, how hard is that anyways? and, is that black sticky stuff just simply a moisture sealer? (and not some epoxy i'd have to bake to remove)

if you want to get HIDs, you need an h13 harness and a h9 bulb, i just realized that the hard way. if you already bought a h9 kit, just go buy a h13 hid harness online. you dont need the one with the relay or fuse or anything. if that doesnt make sense i can be a little more specific.

So after having used and read about that strange projector cutoff, i (finally) realize its intentionally there so as to keep from blinding oncoming traffic (north american).

I had that same discovery about the h13 harness --> h13 relay --> headlights --> H9 bulbs, just too late.

So you have the HIDs in those projectors? How do you like them? Could you get some pics of the light output/cutoff. Would you recommend the combination of the HIDs with those projectors?
